Who is Eligible to Play

We are delighted to announce that the 28th Annual Impact Team Tennis (ITT) Junior Nationals will be held in Orlando, Florida at the USTA National Campus.  The dates for this prestigious national event are July 15– July 18, 2024

Our goal is to provide a memorable experience for 16 coed teams, 96 players and 16 coaches.  The vision of this event, as described by Billie Jean King, “is to provide a top notch, national experience for junior players who would not otherwise have the opportunity.”

*The team will consist of 3 boys and 3 girls and a coach.  Players must be selected from the most current USTA National Ranking List no later than June 1, 2024.  

Players listed 1-150 (as of June 1, 2024) on the USTA National Standing List will NOT be eligible to play in this event.  ONLY players with ranking 150+ will be eligible.
The age division ranking listing must be in the same age division as recorded on the on-line registration form.
If a player is ranked in more than one age group the 150+ rule applies to all age groups in which he/she is listed.
Players must be 14-18 years of age to be eligible to compete.

The Team Spirit Award:  Presented by The Maureen Connolly Brinker Tennis Foundation

The Team Spirit Award honors Maureen Connolly Brinker.  The award is annually presented to a  team participating in the Junior Nationals that best exemplifies Maureen’s love of the game, her high regard for others, her competitive spirit and her commitment to fair play. Maureen learned   to play tennis at a public park in San Diego, California and won all four grand slams in one year at the age of 16!!  The team that is recognized as best exemplifying Maureen’s legendary contributions to the game of tennis is awarded a $1000 gift from the Maureen Connolly Brinker   Foundation to be presented to the non-profit organization representing the team and to be used for tennis related activities for the winning team players.

The Kathy Willette Essay Scholarship provides an opportunity for participants in the Junior Nationals to write an essay about their experiences at the event. A $500 award is presented  to a boy and a $500 award is present to a girl to be used for tennis related activities.  All players will receive information via email regarding the essay guidelines the week following the event.
